Hello. This is my first project upload to the site so I figured I’d show the cutting boards I made for my sister and brother-in-law last Christmas.
I used Walnut and Curly Maple. I glued and clamped the boards together then planed them down to about 1.5”. The maple chipped a little bit but it was easily removed during sanding. I routed the edges with a round over bit then used my trim router to make the juice channel in the boards. I screwed up on one and ended up making the triangle in the corner to hide it which worked our perfectly.
I woodburned their last name initial in each board then used mineral oil and bees wax to season the boards. I also screwed rubber feet into the bottom to give them a slip resistant base and level them out so there’s no rocking when you cut stuff.
They love them and supposedly use them all the time so I think it was a success!
Thanks for looking
